A user was testing Office 2013 and discovered the font his company requires him to use does not work in Office 2013.
Type 1 fonts are replaced by a generic system font, as seen in these screen shots.
This image is from Office 2007.
While this screenshot is of the same font in Office 2013.
This is "by design" – older fonts are not supported in Office 2013. You'll need to use an OpenType version of the font.
To take advantage of the new rendering engine Windows utilizes, these fonts are no longer supported in Office 2013:
- Adobe Type 1
- CFF/Type 2
As far as I know, these fonts are still supported in Windows 8 (the font in this example installed just fine in Windows 8) and can be used by older applications. Office 2013 cannot use them.
yes all my printed literature is using Agency FB which is no longer a font option with office 2013 - now with updates to my saved documents I change the verbiage within the document the Agency FB character will type then some characters will show a blank spaces...

I still have it in Office 2016 - did some other application install it? If you have a version of Office that includes Agency FB, get the font from that version.
According to the link, Microsoft last shipped it with Office 2010 - and either the fonts weren't removed when I refreshed my computer or something else included it.

How incredibly stupid is this decision?
This is a great lesson on how to ruin your company!
I think it's good they stopped accepting fonts in obsolete formats. For almost 20 years there have been modern replacements for those bitmap fonts!
You are correct in that, if you choose to run Office 2010 in Windows 8, you will not have problems with Type 1 fonts.
